The hamlet of Zmutt is more than 500 years old. The traditional wooden chalets, huddled closely together, ooze romantic charm. The small white chapel can be seen from far off. The path leads through the hamlet before crossing the Zmuttbach river. Here, the winter cold creates beautiful arrays of icicles among the icy rocks, occasionally attracting ice climbers. The route then follows an agricultural road gently down to Furi. Superb view of the north face of the Matterhorn Partly follows the Matterhorn Trail with information panels about the famous peak
